Featuring a seed stitch/moss stitch edging, and a central Aran diamond, this teacosy is knit in two pieces and seamed together at top and bottom, leaving a gap for spout and handle. It is sized to fit a standard teapot of 20 inches (51cm) in circumference; the cosy measures 6 inches (15cm) in height. The top of the teapot is left uncovered in this design, so you don’t have to remove the cosy each time you wish to make tea.
Any Aran yarn should be suitable for this pattern, 5 mm needles/US8 are recommended, but there is some leeway given that Aran yarns can vary a little in thickness. I would suggest being guided by the needle size recommended for the Aran yarn you are using.
The pattern would suit an intermediate knitter if knitted as written; however it would be suitable for a beginner if the central diamond is worked in purl stitch instead of seed stitch.

All of my knitted accessories (except items which have stuffing, like charms or baubles) can be machine-washed on a gentle wool wash at 30 degrees, or hand washed if you prefer. Certain items, such as cafetieres and tea-cosies, have been knitted in a more hard-wearing wool/acrylic mix: these can be washed in a regular machine wash at 40 degrees.
I aim to post your item on the following business day.
